Tradewinds DYB


This is the first block I am working on in the Crazy Quilting International 'Do Your Block' RR. This block belongs to Hideko. I have done fine up until this point, but now I am stuck for inspiration as to what to put in the piece on the right. Any suggestions?? I am thinking about a bird...or more flowers
I will embellish the red ribbon seam a little more. I did this to add weight to the bottom of the block, and also to move the red from one side to the other.
I hope you like it so far Hideko.

Thank you very much for your beautiful work!! The colors are really nice. Especially SRE roses are so delicate. I can't wait you finish other works. I know I would love everything what you are going to do. But you are super fast!!

C'est magnifique.

My suggestion would be to tweak that bough of blossoms to droop down through the space rather than to introduce something else.That way you would soften the angularity of the patch you are fetting over.

How about a patch of teeny flowers to blend the colors together and still be in keeping with your theme? Gorgeous so far! Can't wait to see how you finish it up!

I love what you've done so far. Maybe a few buttons? Or a little bit of daisy bouquet?

I can see a pheasant in the brown space - but don't ask me how to embroider a pheasant!

It's a lovely block, Hideko will be very happy!
